Kate Hudson and Matt Bellamy 'better as friends'

Kate Hudson and Matt Bellamy are "better as friends".

The 'Bride Wars' star insists she has no qualms about splitting from the Muse rocker - with whom she has four-year-old son Bingham - because she believes they work better together when they're just pals.

She told the April issue of Red magazine: "The goal is always to stay together.

"Matt and I worked on it together and we came to the point where we realised that we are better as friends. That is a healthier approach for our kids and we can see the results."

Meanwhile, the 36-year-old actress - who also has 12-year-old son Ryder from her previous marriage to Chris Robinson - recently revealed she would love to have a relationship like her mother Goldie Hawn does with Kurt Russell.

She said: "I think what they have, in terms of connection, is really rare and beautiful and something to strive for. But it doesn't come without its stuff, [as do] all relationships."

When asked what the best advice her mother has given to her, she added: "Be true to yourself. When you're connected intimately [with someone], it's a huge time of growth. [You have to] accept what that is and to go there, even when it's uncomfortable, [that's] the time you learn the most about yourself."
